Since (parts of) the application are moving to .NET anyway, and since vbscript seems to be a legacy technology, we are thinking about adding a new scripting component where the user can add his scripts as VB.NET.
Arguments for VB.NET are:
- Users already are "used to" the syntax
- Automatic conversion from vscript scripts to VB.NET scripts will be easier due to syntactic similarities
What other arguments pro (or con) VB.NET as a in-application scripting language are there?
Note that the users writing these scripts are not programmers by trade, so any alternative has to take that into consideration.
